Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

What’s the best way to set up a consultation or an appointment with a landscaper or lawn care professional during the COVID-19 pandemic?

To set up an appointment or consultation call with a lawn care professional or landscaper during the COVID-19 pandemic, take advantage of digital technologies to avoid face-to-face exposure. When searching for lawn mowing, landscaping and lawn care companies online, ask if they’ll do a video call to assess the job and give you an estimate. You can also go over strategies for completing the job and conducting virtual payments to stay safe.

How can I find out if a landscaper or lawn care professional is considered an essential COVID-19 service provider?

To consult national guidelines on essential COVID-19 service providers and see whether a lawn care professional qualifies, visit a page on CISA’s website called Identifying Critical Infrastructure During COVID-19. This website contains 16 categories of critical infrastructure sectors that you can search through. However, not all jurisdictions follow CISA’s definitions of critical infrastructure so you should also check your city or state’s government website.  

Can I use digital payments to pay for outdoor landscaping and design, lawn mowing, tree trimming and other similar services?

Many outdoor landscaping and design, lawn mowing and tree trimming companies will likely accept some form of digital payment instead of cash or check. The COVID-19 pandemic will likely causing more businesses to adopt digital platforms like Zelle, PayPal, Venmo, Square Cash and Google Pay.

Search professionals’ online profiles to see if they list digital payment services, and ask them about their payment policies during a consultation call.

Does a landscaper or lawn care professional need to enter my home?

Because landscaping and lawn maintenance take place outdoors, it is unlikely that these professionals will need to enter your home.

To stay safe during the COVID-19 pandemic, practice social distancing at all times -- even with professionals doing work outside. You can minimize exposure during a consultation by using a video chat service. And when you pay, you can use a digital payment service like PayPal. Discuss strategies with any lawn mowing, landscaping, tree trimming and lawn care companies you may be considering.

Do landscapers or lawn care professionals offer remote or virtual services?

Landscapers and lawn care professionals generally do not offer remote or virtual services. But if you come across a profile that states the landscaper is offering remote services, it’s best to contact them to see what type of remote work is offered. 

Typically, lawn care and landscaping professionals can perform many of their duties without coming into physical contact with clients. Message local lawn mowing, landscaping, tree trimming, and lawn care companies near you to schedule a video call and inquire about remote services.

Is hiring a landscaper worth it?

A landscaper is worth it if you don't want to invest a significant amount of time and effort into planting, trimming, raking, weeding and performing other operations on your garden or yard. Hiring a landscaper to perform regular maintenance in your yards and complete bigger projects is valuable if you’re looking to sell your house. A professional landscaper can make your house more appealing to potential buyers. 

Some landscapers may perform maintenance duties — remove leaves, mow lawns, trim trees and shrubs, etc. —  but they can also help you bring bigger projects to life. This may include adding a misting system, an outdoor fireplace, water features, artificial turf, a patio and much more.

What should you look for when hiring a landscaper?

Landscaping can be costly — though it usually pays off in curb appeal and home resale value — so finding a landscaper who is worth the investment is important. When hiring a landscaper, look for proven success with the type of results you want. For example, if you know you want a drought-tolerant yard, research websites, reviews and portfolios that showcase beautiful drought-tolerant yards that the landscaper has installed. In addition to relevant experience, you’ll want to find a landscape contractor who has good client reviews. Good communication skills are another important quality in a landscape contractor, since everything from plant selection to hardscape installation needs to be discussed and agreed upon. A landscape contractor who is reliable, easy to understand and able to listen to what you want will help make the process seamless and enjoyable.

How do you find a good landscape architect?

Hiring a landscape architect is an investment in your home. Landscaping can reduce water bills, improve your home resale value, add to your daily living experience and significantly boost curb appeal. A landscape architect will draw the designs for your new landscape; you’ll want to hire a landscape contractor to carry out the plans. Many companies provide design-build landscaping services, with a company architect creating plans for your vision and the landscape contractor executing the vision. With the proper academic background and licensing, a person can be both landscape architect and landscape contractor. Here are a few tips for finding a great landscape architect:

  • Research online portfolios and find several landscape architects whose work interests you.
  • Read online reviews of client experiences.
  • Research whether the landscape architects you are interested in are currently licensed and in good standing with the licensing board, and check whether any complaints have been issued against them. Each state will have their own searchable database. For example, you can search for California landscape architects via the state’s Department of Consumer Affairs.
  • Request bids from your selected landscape architects.
  • Hire the one you like the most, taking care to have a clearly written contract outlining scope of work.

What is included in lawn service?

Full-service lawn care companies typically offer a wide range of lawn care services, including mowing, mulching, landscaping, leaf removal, tree and shrub care, and more. 

Companies may offer additional specialty services, depending on your location and the type of business. For example, a company may provide seasonal maintenance services such as aeration, hedge trimming and weeding, while another offers pest control, seeding services and grub control.

Joe was easy to work with! His team completed our landscaping quickly and it turned out great. Our concrete and grass were complete in less than a week and all at a reasonable price. We love our backyard.

J an J Landscaping answered my request quickly, made an appointment and finished the job all within a week and a half time frame. They were very professional and accommodating. Norma went out of her way to make sure I was happy with their work. She allowed me to move plants around and even make changes to the plants she originally brought. The entire crew was very patient with my decision making process. I absolutely love the job they did.

OMG! Amazing! Outstanding! I chose DG Construction because I needed several jobs done and I didn't want to hire multiple companies to do the work. My projects consisted of painting the entire downstairs of my 2600+ sq. ft. new home, landscaping my dirt backyard, and putting in a concrete dog run which would be separated by an iron gate that matches the builder's gate. David Gomez, the owner, came out to my home to give me a free estimate. I explained what I wanted in general, and he refined my ideas and gave me some additional ones. Like a smart shopper does, I sought out other companies for estimates so that I could make an informed decision in choosing the best company for the job. Since DG Construction was the only company that could do EVERYTHING that I wanted and the estimate was reasonable and right in the middle of the other estimates, it was my company of choice. I was very impressed with Mr. Gomez. He's young, but don't let that concern you. He's extremely knowledgeable, experienced, efficient, reliable, professional, and personable. He is an on-site boss. He was there at the beginning and end of each work day. His workers were awesome! They arrived every morning between 6:00 and 7:00 and worked throughout the day until late afternoon with only minimal breaks. At the end of the work day, the crew cleaned-up and made sure that everything was left neat and in order. Throughout the entire job, Mr. Gomez kept me informed of the progress towards completion. I appreciated the fact that Mr. Gomez was constantly mindful of my maximum budget when making suggestions to further enhance the outcome of the various projects that I had done. It was unbelievable that at the end of SIX days, all of the projects that I wanted done in addition to a few extra ones were completed! My downstairs is beautifully painted. I now have a nice dog run with a perfectly matched iron gate, and a gorgeous landscaped front and back yard. I was and am elated! The quality of the work and the timeliness are exceptional! This by far was the best and most satisfying construction/remodeling experience that I have ever had. I will definitely be calling on DG Construction for all of my future projects. I strongly recommend that you do the same. I am certain that you won't be disappointed!

So if there was a phrase that I can say I used repeatedly while working Sotero and his team, it would be "I LIKE THEM, I REALLY LIKE THEM!" Now I'm the type of client who does their homework. I get consultations from the best of the best, and I'm keen on detail. TeosScapes hit my expectations and then some. They are passionate about what they do, polite individuals(they even put my trash cans on the side of my house after I had taken it out) yes... I notice everything, they LISTEN to what you want and EXECUTE your vision! Trust the professionals! Listen to their opinions, it'll come out better than you think! If Sotero says he'll give the estimate in 24 hours, it will be in your inbox in 24 hours. If he says he'll be there at 5:30pm, he'll be there by 5:20pm. If he says he'll give you a second draft by end if day, it will be there by end of day. If he says the project will be done before Christmas, well... Its not Christmas and this completely in 3 days! Follow through has always been a huge thing for me personally and he did it! The proof is in the pictures! Before and after! Thank you Sotero and MERRY CHRISTMAS FROM ONE VERY HAPPY CLIENT!!! You and your team are officially my landscapers!!!
